THE DENCH DIARY

The 'Winner Takes It All' rant in Professional Photographer Magazines August Issue met with a positive enough response for them to offer me my own column. THE DENCH DIARY, a warts & all account of a (sometimes) working pro will premier in the October Issue.


Available to listen to now is the 2nd PP podcast discussing the new and exciting concept the UNITED STATES OF PHOTOGRAPHY - Join Us!

Want to know what 3000 beer mats look like ready for the bars of Northern Spain as part of the 2010 Getxophoto Festival then look now.


This years festival was opened by Martin Parr with the theme 'In Praise of Leisure' curated by Frank Kalero. The accompanying book is well worth a look with an essay by Frank and work featuring Robert Huber's REALDOLLS featured as a peep show at the festival, Martin Kollar's NOTHING SPECIAL and the brilliant AMERICA SWINGS by Naomi Harris.

Proud to be featured as the World Photography Organisations Photographer of the Month with a short interview about my 2nd place image in Advertising, Someone's had their Weetabix - what will become of me next month! There's also a gallery from the England Uncensored project.
